From a grave in Virginia.

The "font" of those documents was handwritten.  Once upon a time people were taught to write neatly, to write "you" not "u", and "are", not "r".  They wrote precisely, clearly.

It isn't a font; it is handwritten.

Yeah, might as well be written in "Wing-dings".

Nice.  All these guys giving you a hard time don't realize that there are font companies that specialize in digitalizing old writing into word processor fonts.

I used to have DaVinci font. It was cool. Text examples from the masters handwriting.

Open Word (if you have it) and try various fonts.  You may need to use a combination of fonts, one font for the large capital letters, another for the smaller script.

I remember when penmanship was part of your mark on an essay.
